Downing, Richard

It Worked Yesterday...

Richard travelled to develop and present work in extraordinary locations and circumstances at the Oceanic Performance Biennial, Rarotonga, Cook Islands in June 2015.

"Over eight days I made three installations in three diverse sites on Rarotonga, using only found materials on site and creating ‘systems’ from these of fragility, balance and impermanence. The extent of the work in such a short time was demanding, but a positive and rewarding challenge. The outcomes seem to have been well received and appreciated for their contribution to the proceedings and their themes. This creative activity was accompanied by attendance at other conference events and meetings and discussions with the curators, attendees and local artists and practitioners. This was a terrific exchange, with much common interest discernible between the peripheries and sea-board of Wales and Rarotonga."
